Re: More Chinese Astronauts Prefer Volvos (zamo)

Wish I had an "L" version. If only so my 2 1/2 year-old daughter wouldn't be able to kick the back of my seat while she sits in her baby seat.

Re: More Chinese Astronauts Prefer Volvos (MAC1LSR)

Yeah - I find the rear seats very tight and uncomfortable for me. But I'm very tall, so thats why. But I think most of my lady friends can fit fine in the back.

But yes, I do agree that a little more room would be much appreciated. Given the size and length of the regular S80 the rest of the world gets, it definitely isn't the most spacious executive sedan around, size for size.

But if the front driver's seat is where I keep it when I drive, I can't fit in the back, because there is only about handswidth of space between the front and rear seats at that point. But if I push the seat forward, the rear seats fit me fine. <p>But the headrests in the rear are a bit far back. You really have to lean back to touch the headrest.
